This restaurant is excellent. I travel every year to Italy and my in-laws are Italian so I know a bit about good Italian food and this place is not just well worth a visit but a MUST visit. Service is professional.

Had a very pleasant meal here, but nothing so special that it was worth the drive. The pasta was good but not great, and the meat was tasty, but had to be sent back to the kitchen twice, as it was originally served so raw you couldn't even chew it! The dessert was similarly good but nothing special. You will... More

The restaurant is outside Lucca center at drive distance and it's serving very good products as food and wine: mix of entries was extremely good, own made wine too. The meat was tender and well prepared even if the steak was somehow too small compared to ones seen on other tables (...so next time I need to be more clear... More

This locanda is a Lucca tradition dating back at least to my grandfather's time. It is a bit out of the way, but if you are staying in Lucca the restaurant will arrange for a shuttle to and from the restaurant. Call ahead and request this at the time of reservations. The food and wine here are impeccable. Aurelio is... More

We went for lunch with our 7 month old. Despite it being quite a smart restaurant they had no problem accommodating us and were great with our little girl. The menu is full of local specialities and everything is really fresh. I had the anchovies and beans to start which were delicious and finished off with delicious olive oil. Then... More

Nine of us went to this restaurant to celebrate our last day together in Lucca. The service was good. The quality of the food was spotty. The pasta pesto appetizer was mediocre. The pear and pecorino ravioli appetizer was substituted with an eggplant ravioli which was ok. The potato gnocchi were to die for. Two chicken dishes were over cooked... More

There is a secret tipp to order pasta with pecorino. They mixt the hot pasta in front of you in a huge cheese wheel and serve it on a nice platter. For mains we had filet steak, which was very well prepared, cooked it to the point, but for me it had to much salt on it even after taking... More

This was a Birthday treat for my wife and indeed it was a treat! This restaurant was recommended by a local resident and did not disappoint – what a find. The restaurant is a traditional, long established, family run place with great service and fantastic food. Thoroughly recommended!

Description
Antica Locanda Di Sesto is a restaurant located on the right side of the Serchio River,in the outskirts of Lucca. The Building dates back to the 1368, as the marble stone in front of the restaurant says, a period when the local merchants started to build their own country estates, used to relax and chill out in the summer but also to gain business profits. From the XIV Century the village of Sesto was property of the "De Nobili" Family and they had, according to various rumors, 101 farmers working only for them in the village. It is thanks to this powerful family that the "Locanda" was built, and even now you can see the remains of the old building inside the restaurant. *We now offer a free shuttle service from Lucca town centre*
